QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I am 23 weeks pregnant with my third child. I had two very straightforward pregnancy with my previous two children, apart from a breech which ended up in a caesarean.

This pregnancy has been problematic since the very beginning with cramping and red bleeding on and off during the first trimester and constant headaches(despite normal blood pressure).

Hpt False Positives?

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I recently was having flu-like vomiting for about 3 days. My mother suggested I take a home pregnancy test and it came out pregnant! I was so excited I though it was too good to be true so I took two more. They all came out with the pregnant results and my husband and I couldn't be happier.

QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
I was diagnosed with high blood pressure at age 23, cause unknown.

I'm now 28 and want to know is it safe for me to become pregnant. I'm worried about pre-eclampsia etc.

I've had two normal full term pregnancies before this was diagnosed and had no trouble with blood pressure then. I am taking lercanidipine 10mg & perindopril 8mg daily

Thank you
